How it works - first find a date that is suitable to you and your guests (minimum of 12 people and a maximum of 24).
The evening starts at 8.45 and we suggest people arrive around 8.30pm. The tasting starts in the main part of the shop with 3 white wines followed by one beer and then 3 red wines - there is also a surprise taster drink. This can be something you choose or John (your host) can do that for you. Each wine and beer is complemented with a matching cheese. John will take you through the tasting providing as much information as possible on each product. The theme for the tasting is 'fun' so the whole evening takes on an informal and relaxed atmosphere. John is obviously around to answer any questions you may have on any of the wines or cheeses experienced during the tasting.
The evening is then finished off in the vaulted cellars where you and your guests can enjoy music and the nibbles on offer. All the wines tasted previously are available for you to enjoy for the rest of the evening. It is John's job to make sure that any glasses are never empty !!
Between 11.00pm and 11.15pm you will be invited back upstairs to the shop where your hosts will serve coffee and chocolates to finish the evening off and order any taxis that might be needed.
The tasting is a great alternative to a meal out and provides something a little different for a night's entertainment/get together - it is the perfect way to celebrate any occasion.
We require a £50 deposit on booking the tasting and the evening is priced at £35 per head.
We also cater for outside tastings and corporate evenings - please call John on 01484 720912 for more information.
